happens all the time with vmware, make sure your vmware is configured to work with networking, ping may succeed, try some thing real like file transfer(not drag and drop) use networking for file transfer, if not configure it to do so...If that problem is fixed then your this problem will be fixed as well....

Check your firewall configuration in RHEL5, does it allow ssh? What kind of error do you get when trying?

I gave up using VMWARE and solved it by using VBOX
